This three-storey brick building on Eleventh Street in Brandon was designed by Winnipeg architect Frank Robert Evans and built in 1917 using, in part, a $10,000 bequest from the estate of Brandon businessman Henry Meredith. In 2002, it was named Meredith Place in his memory.
The building sustained water damage in early 2023 that led to its demolition in November 2023.
